I really like that topic. My "guess" is that faith bothers atheists more than atheism bothers people of faith....but it's a tough one because we're all biased to some extent.
No ones belief bothers me at all unless they try to convince that their's is the right one. Falth or lack of it should be kept to oneself as it's purely a private issue.
I think it's the other way around. I think most atheists really don't care if people believe and in fact may even feel a little envy, since true faith resolves a lot of worries (fears of death, illness, loss, injustice, etc.). Certainly, in my work, I find myself embracing faith all the time even though I'm an atheist, since for many people faith is very healing. Of course, the fact that religious people are constantly shoving their faith in other people's faces (as in NFL prayer circles) is annoying, but in general it's atheists who have to learn to live in a religious world, not the other way around, so we are better equipped to deal with it. That said, there are extremists on both sides.
